I live in an intermediate care facility. I have Medicaid that covers very little of my medical expenses. I have been told that I can not use my disability money for any of my left over medical expenses. I can, however, buy a new tv, or new clothes or shoes, but not medicine I may need or dental work that I need that Medicaid does not cover.

Hi there,
I'm sorry to hear that! Unfortunately, you may not be able to use your disability benefits for healthcare costs due to arrangements that the facility has with your state's Medicaid office, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or any other insurers that are providing your care.
